Change Your Talk, Change Yourself

Change Your Talk, Change Yourself

If you can imagine it, you can do it.
–Martin Brofman

The power of positive self-talk is huge. Every time we change a negative statement (ďI canít do thatĒ) to a positive (ďI choose not to do that right nowĒ), we send a message of strength and self-care to our inner selves.

Positive thoughts are success-oriented. You can eliminate the word ďcanítĒ from your vocabulary and learn how to change other all-too-common negative statements to positives, here:

I canít stand that–becomes–I feel resistant to that

I canít do it–becomes–I havenít yet learned how, or I choose not to do that right now

I canít see that–becomes–I donít yet see that clearly.

I canít handle that–becomes–Thatís been difficult for me until now.

I canít remember–becomes–I donít recall right now, but it will come in a moment.

It isnít working–becomes–I havenít yet seen results

I donít know how–becomes–I havenít yet learned how

Itís terrible–becomes–It has got to get better

Itís a failure–becomes–I learned something from this

Brings to mind the book you can't afford the luxury of a negative thought

To some extent it's true, but don't exaggerate: In the long run, you can't lie to yourself, for example, when you are really depressed, saying 'I'm very happy' doesn't work.
